Bicester Village Apprenticeship Case Study Fareport have been running the apprenticeship programme at Bicester Village since April 2015 and have worked with learners across brands including Ralph Lauren, All Saints, Jimmy Choo, Armani, Charles Tyrwhitt, and Hackett. We deliver Retail Level 2 and 3 and Management Level 3 and 5. We work very closely with the management team to refine and improve the programme and regularly report back on learner progress. In July we held a graduation celebration for this year’s 11 graduating apprentices. All have moved into new roles in their companies 72% have moved to more senior roles in management The other 28% have been moved to positions that will better suit their skills and will support planned improvements for the brands. Value Retail (parent company) are also using their Levy with Faeport on Business Administration and Management development programmes.
